Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 from August 28th, with a PC release to follow on August 30th, Konami has announced.
This latest entry in the series will feature more fully licensed leagues and stadiums, more club licensed partnerships, and a host of new Legends, including England’s David Beckham. Beckham, Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho, and more have had their unique playing styles brought to life with 11 new skill traits that will offer the chance to create new “Magic Moments.”
Other changes include new shooting mechanics that take into account improved ball physics, a Visible Fatigue system, new net physics and celebrations, and new crowd animations.
“Konami has listened to the fans and has put their changes and suggestions at the forefront of what makes PES 2019 the best addition to the franchise yet,” Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director for Brand and Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V., said. “Our number one desire is to give the fans more of what they want and delivering it sooner than ever before.
“On August 30th, more licensed teams, more fully licensed leagues, and the continued improvement of PES’ superior gameplay. We believe in The Power of Football and that’s why PES 2019 will be our most powerful game yet, with 4K capabilities and improved player individuality bringing all aspects of football to life.”
MyClub is also getting its “biggest revamp to date” with a brand new player card design system and the introduction of High Performance Players. These High Performance Players include Legend Players and Players of the Week that will receive temporarily boosted stats based on real world performances.
PES 2019 will be available in two physical editions: a Standard Edition featuring Phillippe Coutinho on the front cover, and a special edition that has David Beckham on the cover and includes some myClub bonuses. A digital-only Legend Edition will also be available at launch that includes more bonus content for myClub.
